    Good luck finding someone who "lives and dies for the local high school football season," and "never misses a wrestling match, basketball game or swim meet."

    I only once missed a swim meet, but have never forgiven myself for it.

    I applied for this only because its relatively close ... Methinks I'm a tad overqualified, but if the pay is at least what I was making at my old shop, I'd do it. Job's a job

    I missed an awful lot of JV and junior high events. Actually all of them.

    I hate myself.
  6. I'm not even sure why they mentioned swim meets ... none of the high schools in the Quiet Corner, as NE Connecticut is known, has swimming, unless this sneaks over the border into Massachusetts.

    Just wanted to say I saw your screen name and found it to be one of the more unique - and lengthy - screen names I've ever seen. End of aside. Y'all can resume conversation about the job now.
